Helpers (a couple or two friends ONLY please) welcome all year-round, especially winter months.

We run an Art and Music non-profit Association, set in a beautiful 2 acre Botanical garden. We are occasionally open to the public and invite sculptors from all over the world to create something for the garden. It is situated up the Valle Tropical, south of Granada, in the mountains, 20 minutes drive from the coast.
Kitty is a novelist and sculptor. Nick is a musician and engineer.

This project would particularly interest anyone who has been involved with any aspect of sculpting, stone, metal and wood or concrete, and who has an artistic/creative spirit. Also need a gardening enthusiast, carpenter, welder, and helpers interested in dealing with visitors.
Day-to-day help consists of planting, pruning, raking, weeding. Also light repairs and painting, maintaining equipment, depending on skills. Always new sculpting and building projects on the go.
We ask for help 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. You have their own private accommodation with WiFi, bathroom and kitchen, and a lovely terrace with wonderful views.
Please be prepared to be self-sufficient, and to shop and cook for yourselves with a reasonable budget we provide. The place is very beautiful and a haven for walkers. There are five bars in nearby village. Bikes available.
